Drive-by paver leaves unhappy consumers

The Washington Department of Labor & Industries says an itinerant paving company has left behind numerous unsatisfied consumers in Eastern Washington.

Spokeswoman Selena Davis said the department has received 35 complaints against Asphalt Driveways, which has posted signs and flyers with a toll-free telephone number around the state.

Fly-by-night paving operators are common during the summer, she said, but Asphalt Driveways has victimized more consumers than usual.

One consumer said the new pavement was draining towards the foundation of his home, Davis said.

More typically, a thin layer of asphalt is put down on an unprepared or poorly prepared surface, she said.

Davis said L&I investigators have so far been unable to track down the company.
